Media barred from NIDCO tour
By Cecily Asson Sunday, August 25 2013
Taking no chances with what they perceive to be a hostile environment, officials of the National Infrastructure Development Company Limited (NIDCO) and Estate Management Business Development (EMBD) paid a site visit to Petit Morne Phase 2 in Ste Madeleine under the watchful eyes of armed police officers, soldiers and security guards yesterday.
Petit Morne is one of three relocation sites — the others are Cedar Hill Village, Princes Town and, Picton Village — earmarked for residents and squatters whose homes now stand in the way of the controversial Golconda to Point Fortin Highway. Among those visiting the site yesterday were NIDCO consultant and president of the Debe to Point Fortin Highway Action Group, Edward Moodie, and several young children who accompanied their parents for the first time to see the area they will soon call home. During the site visit, some of the armed officers remained stationed outside the main entrance leading to the vast acreage of land while others conducted mobile patrol in other parts keeping out unwanted visitors, including members of the media.
